I have been taking Atenolol for over 10 years. I was taking one 25 mg each day along with 25 mg of Htz. My doctor thought my blood pressure was still to high, so she stopped the Htz, and added another 25 mg of Atenolol, making a total of 50 mg each day. After about a month or less, I started having problems with hemorrhoids. I have had them flare up in the past, but never like this. It has lasted for more than two months, very painful along with a rash on my bottom that would not go away. I finally decided that the only thing I had done different to cause this flare up was increasing the Atenolol dosage, so I stopped the extra tablet and went back to using one 25 mg with the Htz. It has only been a few days, but I have noticed some improvement. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem with Atenolol?? I am 80 yrs old.
